What is Spiritual Direction...
This post has been a long time coming! First I want to share an experience around my very first spiritual direction session 10 years ago. It was a major shift in perspective although I did not understand the depth of it until a couple years later. I accredit my own spiritual director (with some years off in the beginning, I still see her monthly to this very day) for igniting my God flame.
It was in 2010 out of pure curiosity (NOW I would call it the movement of Spirit) I went to have a session with a lady in the networking group I led that offered Spiritual Direction.
Your Wellness Gal....In the Beginning
Have you ever set out with a plan, could maybe even call it a dream, You can feel it deep in your bones?? You KNOW, like...this is it!! Thats how I felt in 2009. My youngest was 6 months old, I was working on an organic vegetable farm for veggies, I had found the BIG world of health and wellness, a company that sold "Holistic" vitamins and supplements came across my wide eyes AND I thought THIS IS IT!! I am going to sell the crap out of these products, help people get healthy and make some CASH!! One bump in the road I was a stay at home mom and really did not know a peep in my community...so who exactly was I going to share this with?? Crickets...
Reflection Paper Take 14
Welcome, welcome, WELCOME to my first post!! EXCITING!! I have had a nudge on my heart to write for quite awhile and I was just not taking the time to do it. Always something else to get done! I call that resisitance. It actually shows up in me quite a bit but it has not been until these past couple months that I have been able to notice and name it then begin to EMBRACE it. What a concept, right?? Don't we always just want to run away from it because IT is BAD or uncomfortable. Or we beat up on ourselves because we know THIS xyz should be getting done.
